Angeles achieves herd immunity, says DILG
Angeles City is one of the 23 highly urbanized cities in the Philippines to have achieved herd immunity by vaccinating at least 70 percent of its population, according to the Department of the Interior and Local Government.
Interior Secretary Eduardo Año made the announcement during President Rodrigo Duterte’s Talk to the People that aired on Tuesday.
Angeles City Mayor Carmelo Lazatin Jr. congratulated the Angeles City Vaccination Team for its successful vaccination effort.
“Nakamit po natin ito dahil sa mga masisipag nating kawani ng City Government,” Lazatin said.
To date, 321,977 Angeles residents have received their first dose of vaccines while 264,824 are already fully vaccinated.
The city government has implemented a blended vaccination scheme composed of the Ronda Bakuna and the Sundo Bakuna sa Barangay programs.
The Ronda Bakuna sa Barangay is the delivery of vaccination service right at the doorsteps of Angeles families using three mobile bus clinics, while the Sundo Bakuna sa Barangay program picks up residents from barangays and transports them to the city’s two mega vaccination sites for free.
